The Gap planned a concert series in August and September 2001, the dates are printed on the back of the box (see scans of the back and the record here): Live Hi-fidelity Experience 2001: Los Angeles 08.23.01, London 09.12.01, Paris 09.14.01, Tokyo 09.26.01.

It has no jewel case, just a transparent bag with a paper insert with a tracklist on the back. The CD itself is a CDR (see pictures here). The tracks are almost the same as the official release, except for the first track (which is in fact the edit version of Aftermath, while on the official CD it is the 'Version 1') and the order of the second and third track. Some tracks are in fact edit versions, although it is not mentioned on the cover, see additions in []. As on the US CD-R (see below) tracks 2 and 3 are misprinted on the inlay, because in fact they are reversed.

21. Antimatter (Ragga Remix)
3:31
22. Psycho Killer - Master 3:53
23. 50 Ways (To Leave Your Lover) - Master (feat. Radagon) 2:17

This VERY rare promo CD is part of a 4 CD Set sent out from the Spirit Music Group to TV, media and so on. All the tracks are unreleased and new songs, unfortunately only as instrumental versions. Except the three bonus tracks: 'Antimatter Ragga Remix' (can be found on the Antimatter enhanced CD single) 'Psycho Killer' and the Paul-Simon-cover '50 Ways', which all have vocals. 'Breakaway' was a song recorded with Liz Densmore, released on the Sountrack "Clean".
The Instrumentals all have a short description behind the name (see the back cover and more scans here), like "driving guitars", "industrial jangle", or my favorite: "mystery / driving @ 1.10". 'Enjoy The Ride (Instrumental)' is obviously a song with Liz Densmore, because later a song with that name with her is released on the Brownpunk label sampler (see below).

01. Brownpunk The Movie

This is a promo DVD-R for the movie that Tricky did for his label Brown Punk (read more about it at '
movies don't move me'). It comes in a plastic sleeve with a paper insert, see more pictures of this release here. There is no menu or chapters on the DVD, just the movie. There is also no release date on it, but since the movie was finished in 2006, it's probably from the same year.

This is a DVD with an electronic presskit (EPK) for the Knowle West Boy album. It has an interview with Tricky mixed with images of Knowle West in Bristol, where he grew up. He talks about his family and how he grew up, for example explaining that his Grandma sang prison songs and he heard a lot of prison stories and that could be the reason why his music is 'dark'. I've put together some screenshots of the DVD here. You can watch the video here.

This white label 12" has a Tricky song on the a-side and a song by Yo Majesty on the b-side. Both were remixed by Utah Jazz. This version of Slow mixes Tricky's vocals with the original of Kylie Minogue and remixed both with a drum'n'bass beat. You can listen to the songs here, but the songs are mixed up, you have to click on the play button for the second track! Or you can listen to it on You Tube. The release date is unclear, this Japanese site lists August 20, while discogs lists January 26. Utah Jazz is Luke Wilson, as you can read on Wikipedia.

2. Diane: Une Voix 2:35
3. Fiona Wang: Forget 4:35
4. Marlon: French Conjunction 3:39
5. Liz Densmore: Enjoy The Ride [instrumental] 3:55

This is a picture CDR with no sleeve or cover. All the artists are on Tricky's label Brownpunk, which turned into False Idols in 2013. Franky Riley is in fact Francesca Belmonte, the female singer on Mixed Race and False Idols. She used the name Franky Riley at that time, as a "phonetic tribute" to some of her favorite singers like Patti Smith or Debby Harry, as she said in an interview. in 2015 she will release her first solo album. 'I sing for the joker' is often performed live by Tricky and Francesca, for example here. Fiona Wang later called herself FiFi Rong and wrote and performed two songs on the album "False Idols". She also released a different version of 'Forget' solo (listen to the new version on You Tube). Marlon is Tricky's younger brother Marlon Thaws, who has performed with him live a couple of times. 'Enjoy The Ride' is actually an instrumental and was also on the Spirit Music Group promo CD 3 (see above).
